Joint IDA of Wythe County Presents Awards
at Annual Luncheon in Wytheville

WYTHEVILLE — The Joint Industrial Development Authority held its annual Tenure Awards luncheon to celebrate Wythe County industries on April 28, 2022, at the Bolling Wilson Hotel. An important part of the Joint IDA’s annual industry appreciation activities is our recognition of companies that have had a presence in Wythe County for a multiple of five years. Our tenure awards give us an opportunity to acknowledge and honor the important contributions made by these businesses in our community.

Joining the Joint IDA Board of Directors and the celebrated businesses were members of the Wythe County Board of Supervisors, Wytheville Town Council, and Rural Retreat Town Council. The Joint IDA also recognized the ongoing community support of Wytheville Office Supply, who has been the sole sponsor of the luncheon since its inception in 2005.

Joint IDA Executive Director David Manley shared the history of each company being awarded, and a commemorative glass trophy was presented by Joint IDA Deputy Director John Matthews. The following companies were recognized for their contributions to the community over extended periods:

Lane Enterprises
Amcor Rigid Packaging

Atsumi Car Equipment, Inc

Wordsprint, Inc.
Salem Stone Corporation: Wythe Stone Quarry

Coalfield Services, Inc
Mount Rogers IDC

Musser Lumber Company, Inc.

The Joint IDA Board would like to thank each of these companies for doing business in Wythe County and for their commitment to our communities.
